Will bee escapes work with supers that aren’t on the hive?

I have some extracted wets that haven’t been fully cleaned but I need to get my varroa treatments in.

I took the boxes off and stacked them neatly on a hive mat, then put a bee escape on top.

Bees are coming out ok and the swirling grumpily around the stacks. Will they make their way back to the apiary (about 3 metres away)? Will this kick off a robbing frenzy? Or will they just get stuck in the boxes without the brood to move down into?
